The amazed disciples repeatedly received the miracle bread from Jesus’ hand. It kept coming. How could he get that much from five loaves and two fish? Jesus was reaching into a supernatural inventory. Be blessed it. He broke it. And he gave it to the disciples who gave to the crowd. Piece by piece it multiplied. And when they thought it might run out, there was more where that came from. Grace provisions far exceed earthly supplies. Human resources usually come to an end, spent and exhausted. We see this when fuel costs go up because of oil and gas shortages. We see this in the supermarket when certain items are marked up because the supply is diminished by storms or freezes or failed crops. We see this in the stock market because company performances wane or product development is slowed by regulations or terrorism in certain parts of the world enhance market fears. But on that sunlit afternoon with thousands huddled for dinner, an assembly line of bread and fish made it down to the last hungry mouth. My friend, if you think the God of that bread multiplying moment is retired, well, there is more where that came from…listen now.
